  4. Hi all! I would like to share my latest completed project, the 1/48 Great Wall Hobby F-15C from the MSIP II ANG boxing. I decided to build it in the fantastic splinter camo markings of the 65th AGRS circa 2013. The camo was done without a mask, using Tamiya tape and just kinda eyeballing it. I started by painting the gray, then masking and painting either the white or blue areas one at a time. Some areas were easier to paint the white over the blue, and others the blue over the white. I used some aftermarket on this one, including a Quickboost seat, Meng CATM Aim-9M from the short range weapons kit, and the ELTA-8222 and ACMI pods from the Meng long range weapons set. For decals, I actually had three options to choose from, the Two Bobs "Digital Flanker" set, Afterburner "65th Aggressors" sheet, and the Speed Hunter Graphics "Elegant Eagles" sheet. I wanted to do Blue 94, so that eliminated the Afterburner sheet which does not include that option. Between the Two Bobs sheet and the SHG sheet, the color saturation and stencils were nicer on the SHG sheet, and being Cartograf printed sealed the decision for me. This is the second time using SHG decals (F-4G was the other), and they performed fantastically once again. Big fan of their products! The GWH kit is much lauded, and for good reason. It is just a fantastically detailed kit, and fit is generally excellent throughout. Rear fuselage and intakes take the most care, but nothing major to note. Here is what I used on this build: Kit: 1/48 Great Wall Hobby F-15C Eagle MSIP II ANG boxing Decals: Speed Hunter Graphics "Elegant Eagles" sheet Aftermarket: Quickboost Ejection Seat, Meng Short-Range Weapons Set, Meng Long-Range Weapons Set Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), ModelMaster FS35109 International Blue, Gunze Aqueous FS 36118 Gunship Gray, Mr Paint FS 36251 Aggressor Gray and FS 36628 White Gray, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Yellow, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Molotow Liquid Chrome also used. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash. Without further ado, here are the pics, hope you like!

  6. Right then. So after a long time of not touching any kit with a purpose of starting AND finishing it, plus watching the two awesome Monogram F-14A builds by john53 and picknpluck, I'm going to start knocking this one out. What we have here is the 'Hunt For Red October' edition of Monogram's 1/48 F-14A Tomcat. Livery will be done in VF-211 colors for a line jet that flew on the 1997 cruise to participate in Operation Southern Watch over the skies of Iraq. This aircraft in particular is provided by FCM Decals. So far for this build I have the decals, picked up the original Steel Beach LANTIRN set (comes without the hand control unit), True Details F-14A cockpit, A.M.U.R. Reaver photoetch tail stiffeners, Eduard pe (actually for the Revell F-14D but there's still usefulness for it), and a set of Aires exhausts. The Aires exhausts are actually for the Academy kit however after a lot of digging and asking questions I have concluded that the cans will fit on the Monogram but we will see. Still pending purchase are the following: Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Chin Sensor Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Ventral Strakes Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Nose Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat ECM Blisters Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Nav Lights CrossDelta F-14 Tomcat Step Area & Formation Lights Steel Beach F-14 NACA Vent What I do not know however is what else I need for this. The items I have in limbo on whether or not to get them are: Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat BOL Rails (loaded) Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Wheel Halves Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Walkways Light Gray Steel Beach GPS Domes Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Pylons Set I think that's about it. I know it's a lot, and it's a lot for just a Monogram kit but I picked this up for $5 so it should be interesting. My biggest thing is with all of the AM stuff I just want to get the aircraft right and get it right the first time. I'll start posting pictures as soon as I can and when things arrive in the mailbox. I have fall classes beginning next week plus I'm a stay at home dad to two little ones so progress will be slow to say the least. Oh here's the loadout:

    AV-8B to GR. 5?

    I have two Monogram 1/48 AV-8B’s in the stash and as I am preparing to work on one of them I was wondering if it’s possible to make the other into a GR. 5 as they look very similar. Now I know the nose radome is different (which I have no clue how to rectify), there’s one more set of pylons compared to the AV-8B, and the instrument panel is different (was thinking the Airwaves PE could help with that) thatall need to be changed. Is there anything else that I missed? Is it even possible? I don’t have the budget to drop for another Hasegawa Harrier so I thought I’d ask.

  10. This is my second entry in this GB, it is 1 of 3 kits (A-4E Aggressor and F-16A Demonstrator are the other 2) I plan on building to revisit the kits my father built in 1980 for my brothers and myself while he was away doing training for the USAF. Will build it OOB using the supplied decals just as he built it, this was the model that I set as a benchmark in my early modeling career, I would stare at it for ours at all different angles imagining it in combat situations. The F-5 was lost in a move in 1985, a great loss to my collection.

    SEU-3/A Ejection Seat

    Looking for an accurate aftermarket copy of the Stencil SEU-3/A ejection seat that was used by the USMC in the AV-8A's for my Monogram kit. I am fully aware there are several Stencel S-III-S (SJU-4) made in 1/48 and some manufacturers even advertise these as for the -A models however that is incorrect. Anyone have any ideas or should I just tinker with improving the kit seat?
  12. Hi all! I present to you my latest project, the 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E, "Red 08" in the unique Eggplant Dark Gray scheme of the Russian Air Force, circa 2014. This is really a great kit that has excellent fit almost everywhere, with the wing joins being the notable exception. The kit is not without other issues, however. The exhaust nozzles are molded in the straight position which would only be correct for a powered up machine, not drooped at rest. The stinger tail has flare boxes on the top, which is only correct for the prototypes and early production aircraft. Luckily for me, I wanted to do an early production Eggplant Gray aircraft so the stinger tail is correct OOB for my build. If one wants to do a current in-service aircraft, this would not be correct. Aftermarket used were the AMUR Reaver thrust vectoring nozzle to fix the droop issue, and Begemot Decals. The Begemot Decal sheet includes all the needed stencils for both the aircraft and weapons. The weapons are all OOB, and they are very nice, although I am no expert on the real ones, so I cannot comment on accuracy. But they look pretty accurate to me. I think this kit includes pretty much every Russian missile, bomb, and rocket pod currently in use. This will be a nice addition to my weapons bin ( The KH Fitter was the same way, so I am set with Russian Ordnance for a while!) I used copper wire for the static wicks, some thin scrap parts for the 4 straight probes near the nose cone, and a piece of scrap clear sprue to simulate the interior of the IRST. So, one of the things I really wanted to concentrate on this build was the metalwork. The real aircraft have an amazing array of colors from the heat-stressed titanium, and I am quite pleased with how that turned out. It does look a bit exaggerated in some pics, but in person the look is about perfect. The AMUR Nozzles are quite nice and are easy to remove from casting blocks, clean up, paint, and assemble. Very happy with these. I really enjoyed building this kit, and recommend it to everyone. I know the GWH Su-35 is coming, and I will be getting that one as well to do a blue camo in-service jet. But for someone wanting to do the splinter camo prototype or an early batch Eggplant jet, I would say get this kit. Hope you enjoy!

  13. Hi! is anybody out there that may have a 1/48 MW-1 ammunition dispenser for the Tornado IDS? and that be willing to part with it? Hobby Boss does one for they Tornado IDS. Thanks for any help!! Byron
  14. I have accumulated a few pre war aircraft but had not built any due to the biplane configuration and rigging. I had tried to build the Classic Airframes F4B-4 a few years ago and it didn't go well because I had not considered the difficulty of doing the rigging in advance. I just followed the instructions (what are those). Fast forward a few years and I have figured out that you have to plan the rigging in advance. I have purchased many of Yellow Wing decals to get a lot of different markings options and a lot of yellow paint. I tried not to duplicate any color scheme and that is where the Yellow Wing decals came in handy. I started out with an easy kit, the Accurate Miniatures F3F-2. Attack Squadron F2F Very nice resin kit of an overlooked airplane. Same quality as the Accurate Miniatures kit. Had to try it again. Classic Airframes F4B-4. Something some of you may notice is the lower wing is painted gray and it should be aluminum dope. I missed it until it was too late : ( Classic Airframes P-6E Thanks for looking. Hope you like them.

  15. Hi everyone! Back again after taking another break from building for awhile... So here is my latest completed project, the 1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18C Hornet in VFA-86 Sidewinders CAG markings circa 2006. I was drawn to the large orange diamond on the spine, much like the old A-7s of the same squadron in the late 70s, so I knew I had to build my first Legacy Hornet in those markings. Soon I will build a Corsair in the same "diamond spine" style markings. The decals I used are from Afterburner Decals "Snakes on a Plane" sheet. These performed flawlessly like usual. The kit itself is really nice, great detail and fit was quite good other than the intakes. That was a bit of a struggle there to align. The biggest issue I encountered with this build was self inflicted, however. A couple of weeks ago I had a long weekend off, and I decided I was going to try to finish the build that weekend, despite having a considerable amount of things to do. So I decided to skip the future coat step before decals, which I have never done before. Well, the decals went down ok (I did get some silvering I never get however), but the big issue was the wash. Man, it was a MAJOR pain to get that off, even with turpenoid. So I learned a lesson, I will not skip that step ever again! As far as aftermarket, I threw in a Quickboost seat and Aires closed nozzles. GBU-16s are from Hasegawa weapons set D, and AIM-9Xs are from the Tamiya F-16C Aggressor kit. Now that I have built a Hasegawa Hornet, I will be interested to see how the Kinetic one compares.

    B-25J My latest addition

    It's been a while since I posted anything. I have finished quite a few so I will start putting them up here. Here is the first. Monogram's B-25J Gunship version. Out of the box except for the decals which date back to the 1985 IPMS/USA national convention. The first decal (the red and white strip behind the green) started fracturing when I put it on the model so I sprayed the rest with a thin layer of lacquer to seal them up before dipping in water. It was also my first try at using acrylic paints instead of my trusty Model Master paints. Hope you like it.

  20. Hi all! I am back after a bit of a break with my latest completed model, the 1/48 Special Hobby AJ 37 Viggen from 7 sqd of the Swedish Air Force. The kit is actually very nice to build, and has some really nice detail. There are a few errors in the kit, all of which are well known here and other sites. I myself was not too concerned with these issues, as they did not bother me, and by doing an in-flight build was able to avoid two of the bigger issues (canard flaps droop on the ground and way too thin wheels and tires). That also did not keep me from making some mistakes of my own on this build, mostly concerning the weapons load. Apparently AJ 37s did not carry anything on the outer pylons due to vibration (although this was fixed on the JA and other variants), and I mixed green training munitions with live RB 75s. Oops. I chose to do the Fields and Meadows splinter scheme, because OF COURSE. LOL This is without a doubt the most challenging paint and mask job I have ever done, and it is not even close. This makes the F-16C Blizzard scheme look like a walk in the park. Even with the DN Model masks this was extremely tedious, and required much touch up when finished, and I didn't get some areas exactly right. But all in all, I was very pleased when I removed the masks! The paints are all Gunze Aqueous except the black, which is Tamiya Rubber Black. I think the colors are a very nice match. When I think of the Viggen, I think of a few things that make this aircraft iconic. The unique shape. The fabulous green splinter scheme. And of course the flourescent red day-glo practice markings! I couldn't resist putting them on my model. For these I used the Euro Decal Viggen Day Glo sheet. I did have some problems with this sheet, unfortunately. First, these decals are very delicate, and tore at even the slightest resistance once place on the model. In fact, I originally was going to do "34" for sq 6, but I managed to destroy the #3 as I tried to place it. So I changed the number to 45 and had to be verrrrrry careful with the #4 , #5, and the vertical fin numbers. But I will say the Euro Decals are much brighter and look much closer to the real thing than the decals in the kit and the TwoBobs sheet. I also changed up my in-flight stand set up slightly with this model. Instead of the armature wire I had been using, I decided to try using flat aluminum bar. That worked out very well and I think it looks much cleaner and more eye pleasing. I will be using this method from now on. Here is what I used in this build: Kit: 1/48 Special Hobby AJ 37 Viggen Decals: TwoBobs AJ/JA 37 Viggen, Euro Decals Viggen Day Glo numbers Aftermarket: CMK Bofors M/70 Rocket Pods, Eduard Maverick Missiles, Hasegawa Weapons Set C (for Aim-9Js to simulate Rb 24Js), Master Model Pitot set, and DN Model Splinter Camo Masks Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Gunze Aqueous H308, H309 Dark Green, H58 Light Green, and H310 Brown, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Blue, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash on the underside and black areas, and Deep Brown for the topside. Now on to the pics... Hope you enjoy!

    Trumpeter 1/48 MiG-21F-13

    Dear all when the MiG-21F-13 from Trumpeter was released, there was a thread here about it´s accuracy issues, IIRC. Using the search reveals nothing for me. Maybe I´m using the wrong key words. Does anybody has it still linked, or created it and can post the link? Many thanks, Thomas

    F-23A Black Widow II - the rollout

    Hi all! Here is my recently finished model - the infamous F-23A Black Widow II, as she could have look like if entering into serial production. 🙂 The weathering also features quite a significant amount of "what if", but for the conversion i used all the unclassified pics and diagrams on the www.yf-23.net website. I tried to make this kit as correct as possible while sticking to the mentioned dimensions, angles, etc. - all the changes from the prototype version YF-23. As a base kit - it is the HobbyBoss's 1/48 kit and here is the WIP topic. (PS: the pics on the first pages are invisible... don't know why...) and another PS: the landing gear and the rudders move, so i'll take a couple of photosessions - in an in-flight mode and parked. Overall photoshoot:
  23. The beast has moveable landing gear and rudders 🙂 So this is the photoshoot only in a "parked" mod. Most of the pics are also on a direct sunlight, which helps make the Have Glass shines and reflections more pronounced. And of course - a big Thank you guys, for all the kindness, ideas and guidelines throughout this build! Here is the WIP topic and the "In-flight" Rollout. And now let's get started with some on-the-ground sillhouettes...

    F-23A Black Widow II

    What`s up guys? :) Here is what i got yesterday - this wonderful HobbyBoss kit in 1/48. The YF-23 is a very cool plane, but i plan to make it even cooler - for instance how it should look like as a serial F-23A Black Widow II. Of cource, i don`t plan to start it any time sooner. Yet check out this monter kit - so nice boundaries and continuities and curves and shapes... beauty beauty!
  25. Hi- Just got an '80s NOS Monogram 1/48 F-104C via eBay, which dropped with the colorful 479th scheme and the SEA camo 'Smoke II" decal sheet. Unfortunately the OEM sheet is way out of register, with much of the print off the carrier and on the backing sheet. So I've been looking for Kursad's benchmark F-104C in Vietnam sheet and it is non-existent at pretty much all online and bricks-mortar shops... Sprue Bros, Hannants and others overseas... forget it. Does anyone have the partial sheet they'd be willing to part with, after finishing your chosen subject? Name your price.] Thanks-
